Product Description


Kathy Bates stars as an unhappy wife trying to get her husband's attention in this amusing and moving 1991 screen adaptation of Fannie Flagg's novel Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe. After befriending a lonely old woman (Jessica Tandy), Bates hears the story of a lifelong friendship between two other women (Mary Stuary Masterson and Mary-Louise Parker, seen in flashback) who once ran a cafe in town against many personal odds. The tale inspires Bates to take further command over her life, and there director Jon Avnet (Up Close and Personal), in his first feature, has fun with the film. Bates develops a real attitude toward her thickheaded spouse at home and some uppity girls in a parking lot, but dignity is generally the key to Avnet's approach with the story's crucial relationships. Tandy is a joy and clearly loves the element of mystery attached to her character, and Masterson and Parker are excellent in the historical sequences. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Fried Green Tomatoes Jan. 8 2012
One of my all favourites. Initially, the DVD stopped playing at 1 hr 30 mins - no problem for Amazon. I had the option of a replacement or my money back and chose to get a replacement. Amazon emailed a return postage paid label and return coding slip and sent a replacement out immediately which I received very quickly. I even got an email letting me know they had received the one I had returned.

I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. One I have seen several times but the story is so engaging I wanted in my collection of favourites. Kathy Bates is great, so is Jessica Tandy.

Je ne veux qu'avertir que cet excellent film, dans l'édition ici présentée, ne comporte pas de piste en français, comme cela est faussement annoncé.

Il faudrait que Amazon veille à beaucoup plus de rigueur à cet égard. J'ai déjà vécu la situation inverse ou la piste française était présente pour un DVD qui affichait ne pas en disposer.

Ça me semble très très important.

3.0 out of 5 stars disapointed Feb. 2 2010
Sorry for my bad english. On your web site, it says that the film has french and english spoken language and french subtitles. But it's only english for spoken language, french for subtitles.
I've decide to keep it anyway, I will practice my englsh, but in the future, I will hesitate buying another film, even if it says french spoken language.

Have a nice day

1.0 out of 5 stars Bilingue? Pas de version française March 7 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Ce Blu-ray est vendu comme était une version bilingue du film Le Secret est dans la Sauce mais aucune piste française n'est disponible lors du visionnement, seulement les sous-titres français sont disponibles! C'est totalement faux de prétendre à une version bilingue de ce film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Southern Storytelling on the Screen July 5 2004
I'm always surprised how badly great storytelling makes it to the screen. Particularly, great Southern stories, which tend to make it to the big screen replete with caricatures and stereotypes. I recall, with particular sadness, the movie adaptation of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. While this adaptation to the screen of Flagg's tremendously moving novel does have its share of simple, stereotypical southern "archetypes", these are largely drawn from Flagg's book, and are largely essential to the story. It is, without a doubt, one of the most enjoyable movies I have ever seen and, ten years after first seeing it, it still brings raucous laughter and tears to my eyes. It's the classic "story within the story", and begins with the introduction of a tenacious elderly widow to a repressed younger southern housewife in a nursing home in rural Alabama. What starts off to the housewife as polite and indulgent small talk of past acquaintances with a likely senile elderly woman turns rapidly into an engrossing story with what must be the best "hook line" in storytelling ("Why anybody would have thought she killed that man is beyond me!"). This story then becomes a parable which the housewife uses to change her life for the better.
While certainly a moral parable of the greater value systems of past times, and of loyalty and courage in the face of bigotry and oppression, the story never loses its infectious humor, despite some genuinely tragic events. The lesbian theme of the book is only mildly hinted at, and one would almost overlook it were one not to deliberately search for it. Some of the more brutal aspects of the book are retained, with the rampant racism and wife-abuse still harrowingly reflected, if toned down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fried Green Tomatoes- Review April 3 2004
People always find friends in weird and mysterious ways. In this movie Evelyn Couch (Kathy Bates) befriends Ninny Threadgood (Jessica Tandy) by a chance meeting in a nursing home. Ninny tells Kathy a story of love, friendship and mystery.She tells of Idgie Threadgood (Mary Stuart Masterson) and Ruth (Mary-Louise Parker). Threadgood helps Kathy understand the meaning of life and to live it to its fullest, never taking a day for granted. After talking with Ninny for a while and hearing her stories of how Idgie didn't let anyone push her around, Evelyn goes home to her husband Ed and tells him she wants them be more intimate. She starts working out, decorating the house and becomes more outgoing. Evelyn also learned that she shouldn't be afraid of sickness or dying. In the few short times that Evelyn really visited with Ninny, she learned more about how to love and accept herself. I don't think that anyone else had taught Evelyn what Ninny had. I really enjoyed watching this movie because it was an uplifting story that showed what true friendship and honesty really is. The ending of this movie really made me think because when Evelyn went to pick up Ninny at her house they talked for a while, then they walked by Ruth's grave. Evelyn picked up a freshly written card placed on the grave that was written from the "bee charmer" (Idgie) and looked at Ninny finally understanding who she was, Idgie Threadgood. It was a surprising ending to me because I didn't expect that Ninny was really Idgie. I would really recommend this movie to anyone who likes movies about true friends who come help each other through anything.
